Preview Homes in the Bay Area

Initially, many buyers aren't quite sure where in the Bay Area they want to live. Our agents are happy to provide a guided tour of various neighborhoods in local counties so you can get a better feel for the communities. You can also explore Bay Area towns on this Bay Area Modern website. Here you will find extensive information on Bay Area neighborhoods and Bay Area schools, and get a feel for the Bay Area real estate market.

After your "get acquainted" tour, we encourage you to utilize our Bay Area Modern website to conduct some virtual house-hunting. Our site is updated several times a day, giving you access to the most current information on listings in the region. For a personalized search, you can use the "Search Homes" feature found on our website to search the Bay Area MLS for properties by location, price, property type, property size, and more.

Additionally, you can "Save Searches" on our website, which enables you to receive real-time email alerts as new listings hit the market that meet your search criteria or "Save Favorites" to bookmark particular properties of interest. You can also quickly and easily share properties of interest with friends and family via Email, Facebook, Twitter, and Google right from our website.

No house hunting would be complete without actually visiting homes that you and/or your Bay Area Modern real estate agent have identified. Once you have found a home (or homes) that you are interested in, give your agent a call and set up an appointment to tour the homes. Rest assured that your Bay Area Modern agent will also be watching for homes that look promising.

Once you've located a property of interest, it's time to work with your Bay Area Modern team on the next stage of the home buying process: Making An Offer.
